Parsonage-Turner syndrome (PTS) is a rare syndrome of unknown etiology; however, it is believed that an abnormality of immune response after a previous infection may be the cause of the disease. We report neuralgic amyotrophy in a patient with a history of kidney transplantation with severe acute respiratory distress syndrome coronavirus 2 infection. This literature is reviewed regarding clinical presentation, etiology, treatment, and prognosis of PTS after COVID-19 infection. We should consider PTS as another complication of COVID-19 infection.
